I always love the Junior Track World Championships, because it’s not only the chance to spot stars of the future, but it’s also great to watch the young riders learning and developing – and their huge emotion when they win, and realise that all that hard work over the years has paid off. It’s lovely!
This year’s Track World Champs were shown live, so if you missed them, here are the videos – highlights shows and the full sessions – and I’ve put in the timings for the full races, if you want to find your favourites.
There are some fun videos around today, so here’s a collection – with some links for watching cycling live this week.
Firstly, a little UCI video about life on the road for women’s pro riders – with Katie Colclough of Specialized-lululemon and ORICA-AIS riders Jessie Maclean, Gracie Elvin, Sungeun Gu and Shara Gillow:
UPDATE! and here is video from Stage 1 of the Route de France, won by Giorgia Bronzini ahead of Valentina Scandolara and Emma Johansson:
There’s more video, with Evie Stevens translated into French, here, and more videos, that may only be viewable from France, on Le Blog de Gwéna.
